8 Great Ways to Close the Achievement Gap

by Teresa Woodard on August 4, 2015

How to address one of the most troubling, persistent problems in education

The achievement gap remains a universal concern for educators. It's the chronic disparity of performance between student groups, and it's often based on socioeconomic status or race. Perhaps most troubling is just how persistent the achievement gap is.

Istation produced a free guide entitled “8 Great Ways to Close the Achievement Gap". We distributed it at the 2015 NAESP conference. Demand at the conference was so high, we decided we needed to make it more widely available with an ebook!

Written by three highly respected educators who have decades of classroom and intervention experience, the guide offers tips like these:  

Keep students motivated and engaged. How? Reading comprehension is positively impacted when the material is fun and students are interested. Our experts say tasks should also match individual skill level because when students are asked questions they don’t have the capacity to answer, motivation decreases.

Deepen Professional Development. According to "8 Great Ways to Close the Achievement Gap," teachers need a shared understanding of effective instruction for struggling readers.  An aligned and rigorous student assessment system and high-quality coaching go hand in hand.

Get your free “8 Great Ways to Close the Achievement Gap" ebook now to find more in-depth information about all eight suggestions. You'll also learn how Istation provides critical support to campuses in need of a fresh approach!
